Brussels-North railway station Panorama, Belgium

Brussels-North (French: Bruxelles-Nord, Dutch: Brussel-Noord) is one of the three major railway stations in Brussels; the other two are Brussels Central and Brussels South. The station's bilingual French–Dutch name is generally translated to Brussels North. Every regular domestic and international train (except Thalys) passing there has a planned stop. The station has 200,000 passengers per week, mainly commuters.

Brussels North is the end point of the premetro (underground tram) North–South Axis and an important node of the Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company STIB/MIVB and bus lines of the Flemish transport company De Lijn. More than 30 regional bus lines depart from there, as do international Eurolines coach services.

The station is located in the Brussels municipality of Schaerbeek, in the middle of the Northern Quarter business district, with several corporation headquarters such as Belgacom Towers, Rogier Tower and others, government offices and Flemish ministries. Right next to the station is Aarschot Street, an area of prostitution "behind windows".
